A Business Registration Certificate serves two purposes:
If you are a registered vendor but have not received the Business Registration Certificate in the mail, you may obtain a certificate online. Please note that this certificate is not required for all businesses in New Jersey. It is required only for those doing business with the public sector and with the casino service industry.
You may check the online registration inquiry to determine if the business is already registered. If you have not registered but are required to have this certificate, you will need to complete Form NJ-REG. Representatives of the Division's Client Registration activity are available to assist in the registration process. Call 609.292.9292.
Filing Form NJ-REG
You may submit Form NJ-REG online, but please review the following before doing so:
When seeking a public contract, an affirmative action report (Form AA-302) will also be required. The Certificate of Registration may not be used as evidence of compliance with the affirmative action requirements and submitted in lieu of Form AA-302. Both forms will be required. The Division of Contract Compliance and Equal Employment Opportunity in Public Contracts provides guidelines for businesses awarded public contracts. In addition, answers to frequently asked questions are provided by the Division of Local Government Services. While designed for local government contracting, the FAQ page contains guidance that it is applicable to most New Jersey government procurement activities.
